Existence of Hermitian-Yang-Mills metrics under conifold transitions. (English) Zbl 1266.53028
The degeneration of a sequence of Hermitian-Yang-Mills metrics with respect to a sequence of balanced metrics on a Calabi-Yau tree-fold \(X\) that degenerates to the balanced metric of J. Fu et al. [J. Differ. Geom. 90, No. 1, 81–129 (2012; Zbl 1264.32020)] on the complement of finitely many \((-1,-1)\)-curves in \(X\), is studied. Under some assumptions the existence of such metrics is shown over a family of three-folds \(X_t\) with trivial canonical bundles. These three-folds \(X_t\) are obtained by performing transitions on \(X\). It is known [M. Reid, Math. Ann. 278, 329–334 (1987; Zbl 0649.14021)] that the moduli spaces of all Calabi-Yau tree-folds can be connected by means of taking birational transformations and smoothings on the Calabi-Yau tree-folds. This idea, as “Reid’s Fantasy”, was checked for a huge number of examples in [P. Candelas et al., in: Superstrings ’89. Proceedings of the Spring School held in Trieste, Italy, 1989. Singapore: World Scientific. 366–421 (1990; Zbl 0985.32502)]; T.-M. Chiang et al., Nucl. Phys., B, Proc. Suppl. 46, 82–95 (1996; Zbl 0957.32502)].
